Well, that was awkward. Jets owner Woody Johnson apparently still has the phone number of his ex-girlfriend, Erika Mariani, programmed on his cell phone — interesting — because he somehow inadvertently dialed her number from a hospital delivery room while his current girlfriend, Suzanne Ircha, was giving birth to their second son. I hate when that happens to me.
The Post's Braden Keil reports that aspiring actress Mariani was "shocked" to hear a nearly 10-minute message on her voicemail of a screaming baby and the Jets owner discussing his latest spawn with staff at the undisclosed Manhattan hospital. Some tidbits of the tape reveal that the child weighed in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces, and that Johnson plans to name him Jack. "It was pretty surreal. I felt like I was in the room," laughed the alluring Mariani, who says she dated Johnson prior to Ircha. "I'm just glad I wasn't the one giving birth."
Of course there's always the possibility that it was intentional. Or, it could have been voice recognition dialing. Of course what no one talks about is when Woody accidentally phoned Chad Pennington while he was signing Brett Favre.
